In art we learned about monochrome. Basically monochrome is a art develop by tones and tints of colours. Here’s a example: See you could see the colours getting darker.
Here’s the one I painted:
What was the task? What skills were you practicing? What do you think of your mini-painting? Why? How could you make it better next time?
The task was to make a monochrome picture and after it drys, we have to draw a silhouette. This one was about landscape( mountain). I practice mixing colours and I also practice tints and tones. Tint is a colour with a mixture of white, tone is the opposite, colour mixed with black. I think my painting came out better than I imagine so I’m happy with it, because I thought that the purple will be too dark to draw a silhouette. I think the purple is already a dark colour so I’ll pick a brighter colour next time, because with the purple I got into tone too quickly.
Here’s another one
How does your painting show aerial perspective? Why did you choose the colour that you did? What is in the foreground, middleground and background? What are your strengths with this painting? What would you change next time?
My painting shows aerial perspective because it’s about mountain and the further the mountain is then the foggier it is. I chose this colour because I think it’s a light colour and it also looks pretty. Foreground is the closet to use and middleground is the middle of the landscape and background is at the back.My strength with this painting is not going into tones too early. It has thick layers and so it’s easy for me to paint. I think if I could change this then I would add an silhouette because it’s will make the picture more lively.
Here’s the final result of two pictures:
Using the app wordfoto I added theses word: monochrome, tint, tone, foreground, middleground, background, Brooklyn, perspective and aerial.
What did you learn or become better at by completing this task? What would you like to improve even more?
I think I got better at completing this task by mixing the colours slowly. I would like to improve painting layers even better, because I think I got into the dark colour too quickly on the first painting.
